There are diagnostic and therapeutic ways in which a Fluoroscopic Injection helps:
The first is that some leg pain involves the inflammation of one or more of the nerves, their covering, or their roots, in the back. The injection of steroids directly into that part of the spinal column called the epidural space is thought to aid in reducing inflammation.
The second benefit is that the anesthetic/cortisone solution blocks the pain long enough to allow the body to begin the process of repairing itself.
The last benefit involves the accurate diagnostic information provided by the nerve block when it relieves your pain.
